Christmas is Almost Here, In Case you Forgot. I\u2019m sort of in shock about how quickly Christmas snuck up on me this year.\u00a0Just in case you aren\u2019t already overloaded with all things Christmas, I compiled some last minute Christmas tips, ideas, and website links to help make your holiday extra special. During the holidays, I will be spending a lot of time with Rocco and my husband. It\u2019s Rocco\u2019s second Christmas, but the first where he is showing a some interest. He\u2019s especially into our tree (lights) and wrapping paper (way cooler than the gifts inside, right?). Rocco\u2019s first encounter with Santa didn\u2019t go so well, however.
